Raspberry Almond Scones

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold, unsalted
butter, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/3 cup sliced almonds
1 cup fresh raspberries

For the Almond Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
4-5 tablespoons heavy cream or milk
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 cup sliced almonds, for garnish

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick pad and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Quickly cut in the butter, using your hands, two knives, or a pastry blender. Mix until mixture resembles coarse meal, with a few larger butter lumps. Pour 1 cup of heavy cream and almond extract over the ingredients and stir with a spatula until dough begins to form. Don't over mix. Gently fold in sliced almonds and raspberries. The raspberries will get a little smashed, but that is ok. The scones will still be pretty:)

Transfer dough to a floured countertop and knead dough by hand just until it forms a ball. Form scones by patting the dough into a 3/4-inch thick circle. Cut the scones into even triangles. We got 8 scones.

Place scones on prepared baking sheet. Bake scones for 15-18 minutes, or until scones are light brown. Cool scones on a wire cooling rack.

While the scones are cooling, make the almond glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, heavy cream or milk, and almond extract. Whisk until you reach desired consistency. Drizzle glaze over the scones. Top with additional sliced almonds. Serve!

Scones will keep in an air-tight container for up to 2-3 days, but they really are best eaten the day they are made.

Chicken Pot Pie

Everybody has their own way of doing Chicken Pot Pie. This is mine. It's a lot of work, but it lasts two meals so I don't have to cook the following night. Also, there are not really precise measurements, sorry. It's kind of a throw together, whatever you'd like recipe, so the amounts are to my taste. You might want to tweak it to your own.

1 onion, chopped
3-4 celery stocks, chopped
3-4 carrots, sliced
5-6 potatoes, peeled and diced small
1 1/2 cup frozen peas
Leftover Chicken or Turkey, chopped

In a large pot saute onion in oil on medium heat for a few minutes. Add the celery, carrots, and potatoes and add water enough to cover the vegetables. Boil until the potatoes and carrots are almost done. Add peas and bring back to boil for another few minutes. Drain and place into a 9x13 pan. Arrange chicken on top evenly.

In another pot make the white sauce:

8 TBSP butter
8 TBSP flour
4 cups of milk*

On medium heat melt butter then add the flour, stir to combine. Add milk …
